Why to use Load Balancer with Floating IP?
I can notice every tutorial for using Floating IP is explained through this schematic:
I’m trying to understand why we need to use Load Balancers in combination with Floating IP ? Why not to use only pool of App servers with Floating IP (without Load Banalcers) ? When some server is down, the floating IP will be assigned to other server from the pool and the application will be still available.
